Coach Rutherford I have a question for you. When you have the DB's at your shoulders for any reason is it preferred to have them like this??
Or to hold them like you would a Oly bar like this..
I of course have my own thoughts on this but would really like your feedback first. Thanks for your time.
Coach Rut's answer:
"Since I use dumbbells primarily for conditioning and not for strength tests, I let the athlete pick them up and do their own thing. My experience demonstrates that the neutral grip (position one in your photo palm facing the ear) allows for great extension and an active shoulder so if someone looks confused I preach that neutral grip.
In either case I really want full extension with the shoulder up and the arm on or slightly behind the ear.
Thanks for asking!"
Coach Rut, thanks for taking time to stop by and give us that feedback it means a lot coming from you. I have loads of respect for you!
